Scrapbooking in 2012~Episode 1 Happiness

Hey everyone!!!

Okay so if ya don't ya know. My New Year's Resolution for 2012 issssss to scrapbook at least one page per week annddddd get healthy. I was thinking of adding another take more pictures of the kids/nature/my life than I do of scrapbook projects. That wont be so hard lol. ;)

I have some amazing family and friends that I know I will be able to work out with and get healthy so that one is done!

The scrapbook page a week well that's something I've been wanting to do for a while now. Nothing makes me happier than watching my husband and the kiddos flip through the scrapbook pages I've made. And honestly that's where I started. So I'm going back to my roots so to speak. lol

Here is layout 1 of 2012...

I still don't really know how to take pics of scrapbook pages so any and all advice is greatly appreciated. ;)

I love these kids so much lol. This is a picture of the older two a few years ago (okay more like almost 5 years ago) wow where do the years go? Stop them stop them now. They are NOT allowed to grow up!!! :(

Bah anyway Ive been wanting to use these awesome dies from Emma called Build a Banner Kit. Isn't it 'dorable. Eweee speaking of Emma lets hope my order comes in today did you all buy from the big sale? YUP I sure did too. ;)

I also used a little bit of twine for the banner AND some amazingly cute wooden Mickey heads from Creating a Crafty Life! LOVE her products!!! ;) Oh I almost forgot that little sentiment..."you are my sunshine" is from PK-M16 You are my sunshine from PKS. So cute!

Okay I think that's it I hope y'all like it and that you're having a great day!

  8. Your scrapbook page is beautiful! Love the color combo!

    I'm still looking for a great way to take scrapbook photos. Sometimes mine look awesome and then next time they are terrible. I typically try to use a light filled room, put the pages on the floor and use a chair to stand above. Not sure if that helps! Good luck!

    Love the lo
    Great idea for a NewYears Resolution
